they wouldn't have done anything for sandy hook. they wouldn't have done anything for virginia tech. th it's not because the law failed. it's because people who are supposed to follow the law failed. i put this question for you again. what good are laws if people don't follow them? >> right. so you still maintain that we have to put more and more guns out there and america will be safer? >> i don't maintain anything. you can put words into my mouth all you want to. >> do you believe that? >> let me tell you something. >> do you believe more guns would lead to less gun crime? >> let me answer you. i am never, ever going to do anything that is going to somehow limit someone's ability to protect themselves. and speaking as someone who has had to deal with this, let me tell you something. i've been in the situation where i've had to protect myself. i have two children. i've had my life threatened. i've had my children's lives threatened. i went to the police. i went to security. do you know what -- you know what they told me? they said the best thing you can do is to get a firearm and to get a
to talk about the president's announcement and how the nra has responded since sandy hook. that's at the top of the hour, you do not want to miss it. now to taxes and what we're calling many state by state tax revolt. five states are looking to eliminate state income taxes for people and corporations, they are louisiana, kansas, north carolina, oklahoma, and nebraska. if you wouldn't know it, the governor of nebraska, david henman is here and he's going to explain. thanks for joining us this morning. all of a sudden, did these states have the same epiphany or the same realization that there's only way to get the local economies going and that would be to change their taxes? >> well, i would tell you, charles, we have all looked at the economy that we're competing in, which is worldwide, and we know we need to be more tax competitive. i want to create more jobs in this state, our state, for citizens and higher paying jobs and the way to do that is to have lower income tax rates and corporate rates and in our particular case, i'm proposing the complete elimination of the income ta
who still aren't back in their homes three months after superstorm sandy. elaine quijano has more on that. >> reporter: we found anthony gambino inside a tent run by volunteers on staten island. the temperature outside was in the 20s. when you felt that cold, what went through your mind? >> find warmth and find it fast, and here it was. >> reporter: gambino has been sleeping here off and on since sandy severely damaged his home. the former mechanic lives on disability. this is how you sleep? >> fine, right here. folding chair here, got the t.v., got the heat, it's all good. >> reporter: one of the volunteers is tim chin. these are your supplies? >> these are the supplies that we have. >> reporter: he's given out 70 space heaters in the last couple of days. >> it's been getting really, really, really crazy with the heaters. people are freezing. they're cold, and we're trying our best to meet the needs of the community which is keeping them warm for the next few days as it gets colder and colder. >> next week, they're talking about getting warmer. but let's face it, we're going into
of drought which people don't -- people underestimate droughts. drought probably cost more than sandy will in the long run because of the public sector. fewer games, and sandy is like, was a hurricane and then just whatever you want to call after that, that's a big debate. but we're talking about manhattan, want you to think about this. people are talking at sea level rise in inches, maybe a foot over decades. sandy produced storm surge of three to four meters, or over 12 feet, in one of the most densely populated areas in the united states. and everybody says, i didn't think this could happen. i'm like, well, i've got pictures in the '30s when they were flooding the subways back then. it just doesn't happen very frequently. we had -- all of their imaging equipment in the basement. it makes sense when you don't deal with storms every year, it's much easier to shield, it's isolated, and it's a great space putting that type of equipment. now if you're getting hurricanes every five or six years you wouldn't have built there. if you hadn't had a storm since the series of any magnitude, ma
is -- a few steps to the right are the truthers who claim the sandy hook shootings were engineered by the government to gain sympathy for gun laws. in this atmosphere, how much can the obama administration really get done on gun safety. >>> also, as president obama prepares for a second term, which way is the democratic party headed? a pragmatic riddle of the road alternative to the gop or will it move sharply to the left? >>> you can't be president of the united states for four more years who ut a couple episodes like this. >> we cannot sustain -- whoops. was that my -- that's all right. all of you know who i am. >> we'll have more of the lighter moments of the first term in the "sideshow." this is "hardball," the place for politics. n for legal matter? maybe you want to incorporate a business. or protect your family with a will or living trust. and you'd like the help of an attorney. at legalzoom a legal plan attorney is available in most states with every personalized document to answer questions. get started at legalzoom.com today. and now you're protected. nothing. are you ste
sandy, of tropical storm sandy. they wanted to defend their own territory in terms of politics, but i didn't see anything particularly conspiratorial in any of that. >> no, they're actually trying to save themselves. they've got a bunch of people from very safe districts, and john is right, it would be very hard for democrats to take back the house until after 2020 because all those districts are gerrymandered, and, you know, if you can't take back the house, you certainly can't annihilate the republicans. it was a kind of loopy expression, and i think if john was being honest, he'd say he wouldn't have advised the speaker to say it. >> is victimhood now a republican meme? now republicans are all victims too? i know the democrats are sometimes truly victims, but are you selling the fact, hey, we're getting beat up by these bullies. is this the new thing, complaining, crying? do you think it works politically? >> i think the president's speech on monday did a wonderful thing for republicans. it got them united and fired up. he said nothing that anybody in any red states would say he's
to action. also today a group devoted to responding to the aftermath of sandy hook had its first meeting. nbc's jay gray shows us what both efforts hope to accomplish. >> we are here because of a tragedy. as such, i would request that we take a moment of silence now to remember those lost in newtown. >> reporter: the first meeting began with a moment of silence, though little has been quiet here since the massacre. >> we in contract contract at the site of the most recent and heinous event, have an obligation to make sure that voices are heard. >> reporter: voices that echo today in washington. >> the killing there made us all look up and into ourselves, and say why can't we do something about that? >> reporter: in an effort to do something, today's senator dianne feinstein proposed new legislation that would outlaw 158 specific assault rifles, and semiautomatic weapons and limit ammunition clips to ten rows rounds or less. >> we should be outraged by how easy it is for perpetrators of these horrific crimes to obtain porful military-style weapons. >> reporter: feinstein points out her bi

two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but bear with me, we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, might it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissions, co2? >> no, i don't think so. no matter what we do, we're not going to have the impact unless the rest of the world goes along and we're going to drive up costs on people. for example, coal-fired plants. 19 just shut down in georgia. do people really want to do things like that nationwide when china, russia, india, brazil aren't going to do them? probably not. long term, it's probably not going to have an impact. we've had extreme weather in the past. the 1950s had more extreme weather than now. unless people start seein

and said it was republicans blocking sandy aide people, finally, there was a man who said things straight. he has an approach that is very attractive. it may not be attractive to gop primary voters and i think they'll have another chance to have this internal debate, really, a civil war within themselves. are they going to put somebody forward who is popular with the greater population or only popular with the gop base. >> i think there were concerns. i think hillary clinton had an investigation. she took full responsibility of both of those hearings. when you then see the republican congressman said what does responsibility mean to you? why won't you take responsibility? she says i did. >> sisn't that the problem, toure? the primaries, if the far right continues to guide the tone of the primary, a winnable republican can't win the nomination. isn't that the real problem? >> no, that's absolutely right. the far right will continue to guide the gop primary. until we do something like australia where everybody votes then the extremes will guide what the primaries do. they're going to ask th

with the sandy and fiscal cliff votes. >> we'll stick with the metaphor. warming in cooperation or chilly confrontation? >> the incentives nationally for republicans are to do something about immigration. but if you are -- your average house member up there, you just won your district. probably did not support barack obama, and frankly your incentives are not aligned with the national party. you don't care about whether chrissis chriss christie or marco rubio gets support. pundits and grassroots and a lot of members will decide the issue in the house of representatives. >> big challenges for the president and internally. ahead on "starting point," we've heard about the second term curse. the final four years can turn into a bit of disaster. the obstacles that could give this president some second-term trouble, next. financial obstacles military families face, we understand. our financial advice is geared specifically to current and former military members and their families.

according to lennar, and the sandy bailout will kick in by the end of the second quarter, home depot will fly. we're through two of the washington stumbling blocks, the election and the fiscal cliff. one more leg to go. debt ceiling. the last obstacle may be the least dangerous, judging by what happened last year with the overly dreaded debt downgrade and what's happening now. take your cue from the markets. here is the bottom line. washington fright fest is almost over, people. maybe time to break out the dr. strangelove handbook and learn how to stop worrying and love the irrelevant gridlock that will soon face, once the debt ceiling is raised, and politics cease to be the biggest factor in our investment thinking. kevin in washington, kevin. >> caller: booyah, mr. brilliant one. just a quick question. you know, with the higher cost of foods and energy, and the lower incomes we're all expecting, the average working person, do you think we can return to the dependence on our credit cards? if we are, is mastercard a good buy? >> i like mastercard, my charitable trust owns it, i like
, on an awful lot of issues. look what happened the other day with sandy. it was democrats that got that bill over the line. but, you know, it should be working together for all of the american people, and right now all the polls are showing the american people, including nra members, including gun owners, are saying we should be doing something. one of the things that we noticed, most people, nra members, gun owners, didn't know that everybody was not going through a background check. they didn't realize that 40% of gun owners are getting their guns without going through a background check. these are all law-abiding citizens when they go to buy their guns. why isn't everybody else? that's what we're fighting for, and the president is not trying to be a king. he's trying to save lives. >> we're getting a mixed message from the right but here is the crazier talk. already there's push back to the potential of new federal gun laws in the states highlighted on your screen. for example, stay lawmakers in wyoming, texas, and tennessee proposed outlawing any enforcement of these laws. that's nullifi
